      even as an avid pokemon player and a semi-diehard fire type fan i really dont care that the secondarys a fighting type and i feel really surprised to see so many people actually upset about it
      like i get wanting another type but at the same time i really dont care that much? fighting isnt even a type i like very much but the starters all have cool designs for their fight-y aesthetic and im here for it

        It won't be okay because it would be like having the se song and dance for the fourth tine for people who love thwir fire starters. All of the other starts tend to be unique even when soms share the exact same typing.

          But the complaint is not that their are to many fire fighting Pokemon in general, but that their are to many starters with that typing.

                Lul I was watching this like:
                Oh this reminds me of a polygon video.
                Wait doesn't she work for polygon.
                Oh wow it's even polygons editing style
                Clicks and sees it's a polygon video

                  WOAH that got 4th dimension real quick at the end. It's like we're all in a game with a designer.

                    Incineroar is designed as a fire/fighting type but ends being a fire/dark type.

                    Honestly, I think the devs were making a inside joke by fooling everyone it was going to be another fire/fighting but ends up having a dual typing with dark.

                          Incineroar is fire dark because Gamefreak realized that they made 3 fire fighting starters in a row and didn’t want to do a fourth.

                          Too bad Scorbunny will probably be fire fighting anyway.

                            I kinda figured it's simply cuz gamefreak likes to keep the starters relatively balanced these days and there aren't a lot of viable triangles besides fire, water, grass. Green 6 gave us psychic, fighting, dark. Gen 7 gave us dark, ghost, fairy.

                              I don't think Scorebunny is gonna be Fire/Fighting. I think he will be Fire/Steal or Fire/Electric.

                                She's so right on the Scantron. I once had a test where the correct answers were A,B,C,D,E,D,C,B,A,A,A,B,B,B,C,C,C,D,D,E

                                Whoever made this test for the school of 10th graders in 2012 was such a goddamn troll

                                Notice how the last letter is an E instead of a D to fit the pattern? Yeah. I want to meat whoever did this

                                          I get all the backstory behind the various firefighter starters, but it's just getting repetitive and bland. Almost half of the fire starters are fire/fighting types.

                                              3:40 6 out of 21 pokemon if we're talking about the fire starters.. we dont want justification, we want more firsts, more interesting typing combos.

                                                It won’t be okay simone. If I find out that scorbunny turns into a fire/fighting type little fellas gonna need a few more bandages

                                                  alternate theory; torchic was overwhelmingly popular and chimchar as well but tepig failed

                                                        The point is they’re starters, the Pokémon you will most likely keep throughout the game, making them a special class of Pokémon. That’s a large percentage when looking at such an important set of Pokémon.

                                                                                          3 out of 7 is a large percentage, Simone. You can't just look at ALL Pokemon that exist and be like "no yeah this is fine", we're specifically talking about starters, and not all starters, but specifically FIRE starters. If Scorbunny is also Fire/Fighting, that's now 50% of Fire starters are Fire/Fighting. That's a ridiculous percentage.
